We’re back, for real this time!

This past year has been filled with a houseful of kids (I watch my sister’s kids full time, as well), sewing my little heart out with my Little Dandelion Boutique business (which I am currently taking a hiatus from), building up another shop that I started with a friend, and homeschooling, on top of my regular mommy and wife duties…. It has been an absolutely fun and eventful year but also thoroughly exhausting. I am trying to scale back on a {Read More}
